These light and fluffy buttermilk rolls go great with any meal.
Preheat your oven to 200ºF.
As soon as it is preheated, turn the oven off. This is to warm the oven for rising the dough.
Dissolve yeast in a large bowl with warm water and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
In the bowl with the dissolved yeast, add the buttermilk, oil, sugar, salt, baking soda. Stir to combine.
Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth.
Continue mixing in the remaining flour until a soft dough forms.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
Knead by hand until the dough becomes smooth and elastic; about 6-8 minutes.
Grease a large bowl with a small amount of oil.
Form dough into a ball and put it in the greased bowl, gently rolling it around a few times to lightly grease the outside of the dough.
Your oven should be off, but still warm from being preheated. Cover the dough with a towel and put it in the warm oven to rise until doubled in size; approximately 1-1/2 hours.
Punch dough down and knead it a few times.
Divide the dough into 18 pieces and shape the pieces into balls.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Cover and let rise again until the buns have doubled in size; approximately 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 400º F.
Bake the buns for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
